In 1989 Elio Ottin was an intrepid young man, unafraid of dreaming. After completing his studies at Institut Agricole Regional (Regional Agricultural School) at the age of 23, he acquired his first plots of land. But it’s still too early to speak of wine. The farm as we know it today was involved in three sectors contemporarily: apple and grape growing and cattle breeding.
In 1999 Elio made what turned out to be the most important and best decision of his life by resigning from his permanent job in the regional administrative offices in order to devote his working life to viticulture. His thirst to improve, his passion and enthusiasm led the company into expansion and the farmland quickly grew to a total of 13 hectares which comprised 4 hectares of vineyard, 4 hectares of apple orchards and 5 hectares of grazing land.
When 3 additional hectares were acquired in 2014, the farm reached its ideal size, attaining top quality is an unending quest for balance. By now, Elio was not treading this path alone as his son Nicolas had joined his side and this, in his own words, was his greatest success of all.
